Where the...Darkness?

One of the things I always remember from the old Monkey Island games, particularly Curse, is the "darkness". The whole Blood Island thing, for example, was so damned...dark...that it was really memorable and atmospheric.

So far no darkness in Tales, unfortunately (but still a great game). Will it come, or has MI taken a turn for the happier?

  • Yeah I know exactly what you mean I am hoping that we will still see it.
  • LeChuck's Revenge was the best game for that atmosphere - I still get chills at some parts when I replay it now.
    I really hope Tales manages to incorporate some of the "darkness", Spinner Cay was halfway there but not quite up to scratch.
  • I think the last two chapters will catch up on that "darkness" most certainly. There might be a couple of characters carrying out their master plans which will be revealed in EP5 latest. And those master plans sure are evil and dark. ;)
  • Guybrush better beware the hangman's noose! More so, Flotsam at night then just before dawn, what with the Mad Doctor on the prowl...


    I am a man who walks alone
    And when I'm walking a dark road
    At night or strolling through the park

    When the light begins to change
    I sometimes feel a little strange
    A little anxious when its dark

    Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
    I have a constant fear that someone's always near
    Fear of the dark, fear of the dark
    I have a phobia that someone's always there

    damn now i had to listen to fear of the dark... i love this song!! METAL!
  • I have a feeling Flotsam will have just what you're looking for in Episode 4. I just have this feeling we'll be seeing nighttime in Episode 4 through the whole chapter, along with a darker turn in story.
  • Would a trial take place at night though?

    Doesn't matter. It's in a building, with very few (if any) windows.
  • it could happen at night on a pirate island.
